Fujitsu Updates UH Series Laptops with 8th Gen Intel CPU
Ron Perillo / 3 years ago
Fujitsu is updating their UH series with new models sporting Intel’s latest Coffee Lake CPUs. These 8th generation processors are their most efficient yet, making it ideal for the lightweight-by-design UH series. The lightest version of the LifeBook UH series model clocks in at just 1.6 pounds (~725 grams). However, Fujitsu forgoes the battery life and size to keep the weight this low. The good news is that even the version that has twice the battery capacity is only ~900 grams and still under 2.0 pounds. Users have the option of going for a 25 watt or 50 watt battery. It is also quite compact, measuring only around 15mm thick.
